Recipes or ideas for a goat shank?

Like many of you I’m sure, I’m slowly working my way through a freezer full of farmers’ market purchases.

A while ago, I bought a goat shank, although Im not sure what to do with it. I’m assuming a braise, but I’d love some tips. I’d rather not do a curry/curry spices, but am otherwise open.

Help! Thank you!

Hi! I think if you were to braise this for 2+ hours (350F oven) in a mixture of crushed tomatoes, plus ground cumin, diced onions, dried and/or fresh chopped chiles, olive oil, and a splash of lemon juice or vinegar, then shred the meat after it braises, you could make some great goat shank tacos!

You could also go the French route with this recipe here, braising it with white wine, prunes, shallots, and brandy:

Hope this helps!
